Boneless Skinless Chicken Thighs Crockpot – The Typical Mom
Making boneless, skinless chicken thighs Crockpot-style has never been easier. With this easy homemade sauce or barbecue requires little preparation.

This is one of the most underrated and overlooked pieces in the bird. Dark meat is much more tender and tasty than breasts. I didn’t fully realize this until much later in life, but now I’m here to share it.
Yes, bone is cheaper, but many times it can be found without sales and that’s when I charge it. If you have deep frostbite you should too. Separate them into 1-pound bags and thaw the night before. Then make chicken Crockpot.
Let’s talk a little bit about slow cooking, okay? First of all, I have a few different varieties and I love them all. Each has an occasion to be used as…
- This is my programmable 6-quart favorite with a locking lid, so it’s also great to take
- If you just want to serve a few appetizers, you should get this one that sits next to each other
- I prefer not to use coatings, but simply to sprinkle olive oil inside before adding my food for easy cleanings.
to a meal.
Let me give you a look at my pretty thang I recently bought. It goes with my kitchen, so I can leave it on the countertop all the time. 😉
Crock Pot Chicken Thighs Recipe
As for the sauce you have many options. I mean I’ve become Italian with our Crockpot chicken cacciatore recipe. That was super easy with a jar of spaghetti sauce already prepared.
If you have a favorite BBQ sauce, you can use it with broth and skip the rest of the ingredients, just pay attention to the moment. However, adding a little sweetness is great.
- Fresh or thawed thighs that are skinless and pitted
- The uses of chicken broth are many, it’s time to dilute
- Peach jam is the pump to add some sweetness, or substitute 1/4 cup brown sugar
- Worcestershire sauce
- Cayenne pepper
- Poultry seasoning
- powder and/or salt would also be a nice addition + minced garlic if you want a stronger flavor
Salt and pepper, a pinch in the sauce. Then use a little when serving to taste. I love serving this over a pressure cooker white rice pot and a side of slow-cooker mashed potatoes.
You literally put the meat in the bottom, beat the sauce, pour it over and let this baby go. Then, about 30 minutes before it is done, you can make some baked vegetables or potatoes to serve with it.
Need to add liquid to slow-cooker chicken?
yes. You need a liquid and/or sauce to create some steam and help vaporize the meat in some way. That is why you should slowly cook the chicken over low heat at all times. Speeding up the process on high is possible, but not as desired. I’ll provide both options below on the recipe card, but I always recommend a lower temperature for longer.

Since you are adding raw chicken to the mixture, there will be a little more liquid added/emitted by the meat as it cooks. To begin with, you should add a little water or broth so that it is not so thick and absorbs better.
We have a
printable recipe card at the bottom of this post, but I have a quick step-by-step set of instructions here so you can get the drift while looking at these photos.
I didn’t find this necessary, but in the end, if you really wanted to thicken the sauce, you could beat some cornstarch to thicken in the liquid. Place a pot on the stove and boil everything until it has the consistency you want.

Yes, you could do the same with bone in chicken thighs, but it would increase the cooking time from 30 minutes to 1 hour. Want to look wow when serving these cooked chicken thighs ? Sprinkle with a few diced sesame seeds and green onions if you want. Served with green beans my family loved this recipe last week.
How long should you cook chicken thighs in a cooking pot?
About 5.5 hours off is right. Of course, this always depends slightly on how thick they are and whether there is a bone or not. Before consuming poultry, you should always make sure that the internal temperature of the meat is high enough or you can get sick.
For the most part, when you make meat in a slow cooker, it will crumble when you’re done. So tender and soft you can cut or crush it with two forks. Yes, it is indeed that wonderful. A great other way to serve this is to crush the meat, put it back in the sauce and serve inside tortillas as tacos, or inside sliding buns for a fun appetizer!
Is it safe to cook frozen chicken thighs?
You can. I’ve made Crockpot frozen chicken with breasts before which turned out great. You have to hope that this way the meat doesn’t really stay together in one piece. If you want it crushed, it doesn’t really matter if it’s thawed or not, apart from increasing the cooking time.
The rule of thumb is that you have to add 50% more time than you would if the protein wasn’t rock hard. Know that it will also let go of more liquid when cooked, so your sauce may become thinner than you would like. However, it is a good option if you are in trouble and want to throw dinner away and have a moment of oblivion.
